Two East Asian Art Exhibits Bring Summer Crowds to Traverse City’s Dennos Museum

Traverse City, MI (PRWEB) June 20, 2014

Two unique exhibits of East Asian art featuring an iconoclastic Korean sculptor and a provocative photographic record of social change in modern China are drawing crowds this summer at the Dennos Museum Center in Traverse City, Mich.

Both exhibits — Seungmo Park: Meticulously Snipped and Wrapped and How to Return will be on display at the Dennos until Sept. 7. Museum director Gene Jenneman, who visited Seungmo at his studio outside of Seoul late last year, says hes been delighted with the public response to them.

I watched throngs of people come through people who are not our usual visitor types, he said. They were telling me they had never seen anything like it. They were actively engaged with the work, photographing themselves with — and in — one of the works that allows you to become part of the piece.

The Dennos show is Seungmo Parks first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. and features his meticulously cut MAYA imagery, in which the sculptor uses layers of wire mesh to create deep images that combine an ethereal, spiritual depth with nearly photographic realism.

Parks other sculptural works are drawn from models found around him – a person, a piano or a motorcycle which he transforms into oddly disturbing shapes wrapped in aluminum wire.

How to Return: an exhibition of Contemporary Chinese Photography is a showcase exhibition organized with Shanghais M97 Gallery, whose owner Steven Harris is a Michigan native who summered in nearby Northport as a young man. Harris chose the work of seven contemporary Chinese photographers who reflect the contrasts and collisions between tradition and change.

Harris believes current art in China reflects a growing disenchantment with the veil of glittery consumerism and all it promised, and a search for ways to find whats left of their roots. Each of the seven artists included in the Dennos exhibition conducts that search differently.

Adou and Luo Dan are perhaps most recognized for their work documenting ethnic minority groups in China like the Yi of Sichuan and the rural villagers of Yunnan. Song Chao emerged on the international stage with a series of portraits of his fellow coal miners, while painter turned photographer Liang Weizhou depicts the industrialization and post-industrialization of the water towns and countryside around his native Shanghai. Huang Xiaoliang and Lu Yanpeng present composed and landscape images of delicate and dreamlike quality, while Wang Ningdes conceptual images explore the tension between todays China and memories of the Cultural Revolution; his iconic series Some Days has achieved international acclaim.

Since its opening in 1991, the Dennos has become northern Michigans most significant cultural center. In addition to a collection that includes over 1,100 catalogued works of artworks from the Inuit people of the Canadian Arctic, it has hosted several major traveling exhibits, from works by studio glass artist Dale Chihuly to artifacts of ancient Egypt and gold from pre-Columbian Panama.

Located on the campus of Northwestern Michigan College, it is also the home of Milliken Auditorium, whose annual series of jazz, blues and world music is a hugely popular part of the states cultural mosaic.

The museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, Thursday until 8 pm and Sundays from 1-5 pm. Admission is $ 6 for adults and $ 4 for children. For more information on the Museum and its programs, go to http://www.dennosmuseum.org or call 231-995-1055.

SIUE Gains NASAD National Accreditation

Edwardsville, IL (PRWEB) July 02, 2014

The National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) has accredited Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. The four-year process came to a conclusion in early June.

Accreditation is achieved through both self-study and peer review processes. The comprehensive evaluation process began in 2011. The next comprehensive review is scheduled during the 2021-22 academic year.

Barbara Nwacha, associate professor and chair of the Department of Art and Design within SIUEs College of Arts and Sciences, credited the many institutional leaders who drove the process. College of Arts and Sciences Dean Aldemaro Romero and Vice Chancellor for Administration Kenn Neher were key supporters, she said. Art and Design Professors Ivy Cooper and Thad Duhigg played important roles as Ivy began the process, and Thad worked closely with Kenn on building and safety improvements.

With a wide variety of offices and administrators supporting the effort, Art and Design Associate Professor John DenHouter worked closely with Dean Romero to further the process.

This is a major accomplishment that should be beneficial to SIUE Art and Design as we continue to attract students who desire the best instruction as they seek to fulfill their creative potential, Nwacha said. The accreditation process is time intensive but rewarding. The acknowledgement that our programs and facilities meet this high standard is extremely gratifying.

The best testimonial of the high quality of instruction art and design students receive can be seen every year when those students, both graduate and undergraduate, show on campus their pieces of art on so many different media, Romero said. Visitors experience a highly professional gallery exhibit.

NASAD has certified the following undergraduate degree programs in SIUEs Department of Art and Design: art history, studio art, art education, and art and design. NASAD certified the following graduate programs in SIUEs Department of Art and Design: art therapy counseling and studio art.

SIUEs Art and Design Building renovation and expansion debuted with a grand opening during Spring 2012. The vibrant $ 16 million project provides a welcoming atmosphere for faculty, staff, students and the greater community. The structures feature a distinctive beauty and openness, and centralize the Universitys art programs, including ceramics/glass, drawing, foundations, graphic design, metalsmithing, painting, photography/digital arts, printmaking, sculpture and textiles, art education, art history and art therapy.

Founded in 1944, NASAD is an association of approximately 323 schools of art and design, primarily at the collegiate level, but also including postsecondary non-degree-granting schools for the visual arts disciplines. It is the national accrediting agency for art and design, and art and design-related disciplines. The Association also provides information to the public. It produces statistical research, provides professional development for leaders of art and design schools, and engages in policy analysis.

Central to SIUEs exceptional and comprehensive education, the College of Arts and Sciences has 19 departments and 85 areas of study. More than 300 full-time faculty/instructors deliver classes to more than 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty help students explore diverse ideas and experiences, while learning to think and live as fulfilled, productive members of the global community. Study abroad, service-learning, internships, and other experiential learning opportunities better prepare SIUE students not only to succeed in our region’s workplaces, but also to become valuable leaders who make important contributions to our communities.
